Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two disciples who heard John and followed Jesus.
Andrew at once found his brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means “Christ”). (John 1:40-41) Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the man whom Moses wrote about in his teachings and whom the prophets wrote about. He is Jesus, son of Joseph, from the city of Nazareth.” (John 1:45)
Andrew and Phillip were among the first of Jesus’ disciples. Jesus called them specifically. But what was the first thing these two did?
They went to their friends and families and told them about Jesus. Just think for a minute about this: If Andrew had not told Simon about Jesus, would we have the books of first and second Peter? Would we have the recording about Peter walking on water or his cutting off the ear of the priest’s servant? Peter denied Jesus three times yet went on to be a major leader in the first century church. We have all this, and more, because his brother was excited about Jesus.
Are you excited about Jesus?
Who have you told lately?
What stories can be written by or about your friends and families because you told them about the Savior?
Yes, Jesus saved you.
Now go out and tell someone.
